Using Inline Assembly in C/C++

, 14 Oct 2006 CPOL
This article describes using inline assembly code in your C/C++ program... was it ever difficult for you, it will never be any more!
#include <stdio.h>

int gcd( int a, int b ) {
	int result ;
	/* Compute Greatest Common divisor using Euclid's Algorithm */
	__asm__ __volatile__ ( "movl %1, %%eax;"
						  "movl %2, %%ebx;"
						  "CONTD: cmpl $0, %%ebx;"
						  "je DONE;"
						  "xorl %%edx, %%edx;"
						  "idivl %%ebx;"
						  "movl %%ebx, %%eax;"
						  "movl %%edx, %%ebx;"
						  "jmp CONTD;"
						  "DONE: movl %%eax, %0;" : "=g" (result) : "g" (a), "g" (b)

	return result ;

int main() {
	int first, second ;
	printf( "Enter two integers : " ) ;
	scanf( "%d%d", &first, &second );

	printf( "GCD of %d & %d is %d\n", first, second, gcd(first, second) ) ;

	return 0 ;
